eminov posted a topic in Global News forumRival candidates for the presidency, both beset by controversy, will spar over six topics including debt and immigration during final clash before election day. Las Vegas is due to witness its most surreal showdown since Mike Tyson repeatedly bit Evander Holyfield’s ear in the middle of a heavyweight boxing match, as Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton square off in the third and final debate before the presidential election. For Trump, Wednesday night’s debate may be the last opportunity to salvage the dwindling support that in recent weeks has seemingly placed the election increasingly out of the Republican nominee’s reach. The encounter at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, comes as both campaigns are beset by controversy in the final stretch of the most unusual presidential campaign in modern history. Clinton has been forced to contend with the illegal hacking of her campaign chairman’s emails, leaked in tranches by WikiLeaks in what the US government has described as the work of Russian intelligence. Trump has faced even greater obstacles, stemming from an unearthed tape in which he boasted of groping women without their consent that prompted a number of women to come forward with accusations of sexual assault against the real estate mogul over a nearly three-decade period. The debate, moderated by Fox News’ Chris Wallace, will focus on six topics: debt and entitlements, immigration, economy, the supreme court, foreign hotspots and fitness to be president. But as in the last two debates between Trump and Clinton, policy is expected to take a back seat to the unpredictable behaviour associated with Trump. The former reality TV star, who has spent the past week darkly warning of voter fraud, has one more chance to try to staunch his leaking support in the polls. Polling aggregator Real Clear Politics shows Clinton with an average lead of almost seven points in recent polls, a lead comparable to that of Barack Obama over John McCain at a similar point in the 2008 election. Even deeply Republican states such as Alaska, Utah and Texas are within the margin of error in some surveys and the Clinton campaign, buoyed by its momentum, is now investing in conservative battlegrounds that include Arizona, Indiana and Missouri. Clinton has maintained a tradition of burying herself in debate preparation in recent days, thus keeping a lighter footprint on the campaign trail. Trump, by contrast, has been notoriously averse to readying himself for the debates and has suffered through two below par performances. Even so, the Republican nominee mocked Clinton at a Colorado rally on Tuesday as “resting”. “It’s lying down and going to sleep,” Trump said, taking another veiled jab at Clinton’s health despite records disclosed by the former secretary of state last month showing no significant medical issues. Clinton’s campaign said her focus would remain on policy in the debate regardless of Trump’s efforts to rattle her with criticisms intended for a base that routinely engages in chants of “Lock her up” at his rallies. “What we have seen is that when she does do that, the character of Hillary Clinton that’s revealed to voters is someone that is quite capable of standing up to him and defending American values and reaffirming them,” Jennifer Palmieri, a spokeswoman for Clinton’s campaign, told reporters on Tuesday.
